2 people dead in Calgary house fire

Two people died in a Calgary house fire on Wednesday, while two self-evacuated.

The Calgary Fire Department says it received multiple calls about a residence in the 2800 block of 41st Street Southwest having heavy smoke coming from the basement window at around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

A neighbour who saw the fire entered the home and pulled a resident out onto the lawn and began performing CPR.

As firefighters arrived, some took over CPR, while others “began an aggressive interior attack” and searched the home for any remaining people, Calgary fire said.
